Sheltair Has Activated Its Hurricane Response Plan At All Of Its Aviation Facilities Now Threatened By "Irma"

Sheltair has activated its hurricane response plan in the face of what may be historically dangerous weather being generated by Hurricane Irma, now predicted to head for Florida by the end of this week.

While forecasters can't predict the exact track of the storm, Sheltair officials are anticipating the temporary suspension of their FBO operations at Fort Lauderdale/Hollywood (FLL), Pompano Beach (PMP), AND POSSIBLY  Orlando (ORL), Daytona Beach (DAB), Jacksonville (JAX) and Savannah (SAV) starting Friday, Sept.  8, and extending through Sunday, Sept. 10.

"Sheltair has long recognized not only the potential threat to our airport facilities from severe weather, but also the ability to resume operations quickly to support recovery efforts within hours of a storm's departure," said Sheltair's Chairman, CEO and founder Jerry Holland. "Accordingly, our company is well prepared to withstand a storm that may be of historic proportions and to reopen as quickly as possible to support the arrival of FEMA crews, Air National Guard, or any other agencies inbound to offer help."
